STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
All over the world, employers, teachers and students are beginning to really understand the importance of these skills.
Why is this?
The world continues to become more and
more technologically driven. More people are using computers, more
processes are being mechanised, and more products are being based on
intelligent, intuitive systems.
Because of this, the world needs more and more technologists and engineers. And these people need to have good STEM skills.
Here are just a few examples of technological products:
- Your TV Box and all of the services coming into your home via broadband
- Your supermarket receipt, and vouchers that know what you usually buy
- Products designed just for you – personalised trainers, for example
